Salads are a summer staple for my family. They are easy to make and require no cooking. Summers in San Diego are scorchers so this is important. This Cucumber Herb Salad is very similar to my Cucumber Dill Salad but uses a variety of fresh, leafy herbs for flavor.
This salad goes really well with my Turmeric Grilled Shrimp recipe. That recipe isn’t 100% strict AIP. You’ll need to be able to handle a few introductions but the salad stands alone. It would be delicious with any grilled meat. We’ve been making this salad every time we grill outside this summer.
